How to roast chestnuts?
To roast chestnuts, the essential thing is that you have a medium-large pan, although it will depend on the number of chestnuts you are going to roast.
Once you have chosen all the chestnuts, you must make a deep line in the shell at the back with the help of a knife. Put them in the previously heated pan and add a little bit of salt, which will then give a delicious touch between the sweetness of the chestnuts and the salt itself.
It is convenient that you cover them with the lid of the pan and let them toast, until on one side they turn a bit black (but not until they get to burn).
Finally, and once warm, they will be ready to eat.
